Coffee Break: Iced Kashmiri Chai Latte at Remedy North

Cheers abounded when news of a downtown location of Remedy was announced. Fans of the existing south side location were already familiar with the huge array of hot and cold drinks (in particular, the unique chai), reasonably priced Indian food, and artistic atmosphere.

The new location at 10279 Jasper Avenue has only been open a short time, but is already making waves in the downtown core. It is one of the few places in the area open late. The atmosphere is brighter and more spacious, with menus on electronic screens rather than blackboards. The pervasive smell of curry is much fainter. But the place is hopping with everyone from hippies to hipsters and everyone in between.

I had an iced Kashmiri chai latte. The spicy, milky treat was topped with crushed pistachios and dried rose petals, adding for some red to contrast the dominant green. The drink was refreshing and perfectly seasoned.
